Masjid Yusof Ishak



Traditional mosque re-interpreted

The Project


Approaching congregants will first identify the mosque with its minaret as the landmark. Upon reaching, they are greeted by the Bab which marks the entrance as a bridge between the mosque and the community. This is further emphasized with a grand portal as a node to orientate people towards Kiblah.

The Challenge


The site has a narrow frontage and has limited infrastructure and access. Being the first development on a relatively white site, basic infrastructure such as minor sewer line, telecom, electrical cables and water pipe has to be coordinated with the Authorities, and built to serve the site.
